Do a search on the web for "Camtasia" or "Hypercam" which are a couple tools for capturing a Powerpoint presentation as a movie.

And obviously, you can just set up your camcorder and video tape it. Smiley This works best if you have an LCD flatpanel, so you don't get the rolling frames of a CRT.

Or why not just "Publish" the movie from the Producer? Here is a tutorial: Publishing to Your Computer or the Network

Rehan

I've seen you mention Producer a couple of times in response to such posts.
From what I can see, in Producer, the publishing feature only converts the video and audio to WMV format, not the Powerpoint presentation. The presentation is in a separate frame on a webpage.
Have I missed something here?

Glow, you are right but I guess it would be fairly obvious that once presentation is published with time durations of the slides adjusted as required, it can be played as HTML locally... then web page can be captured back as a movie. There is a v nice Capture option right from the toolbar.

although quality can be an issue you could use the screen capture codec of windows media encoder (a free download from microsoft). I have used it a few times in the past and it does work. Depending on what you are trying to achieve another approach would be to use movie maker to create a movie that contains the "non-video" components of your presentation (assuming these are images or powerpoint slides).

So is there no way to convert powerpoint to video using producer?

You could go the long way around and record the asx file using wm recorder but this would just be too much hassle. Surely there must be a way.

As Rehan mentioned in his post, you can just record the powerpoint presentation (and any other programs you are using) using Producer's screen capture function (much the same as Windows Media Encoder). The screen capture codec seems to be very good - sharp images with small file sizes.
Cool

I've tried that before but all the screen capture programs i've tried dont capture the animations very well, especially the fast ones.

Did you try reducing the video hardware acceleration? That might help with screen capture.
Otherwise I guess you have to
- use a dedicated converter program if one exists
- reduce the use of fast animations
- use your video camera to film the screen or record the TV-out if you have one.

presentation to video converter is really good tool.
it converts ppt/pps 2 avi/asf/wmv/mpeg and can also burn cd/dvd (playable on a tv).

yes, that`s a really worthwhile tool. i`ve been using the trial version and now i think of buying it. also i used a free converter on vidflash.com-it`s not a bad one, very helpful and convenient. i just had to send my file there, and it had been converted very fast.

faculty.lagcc.cuny.edu/eiannotti/telc7.2/Documents/PowerPointMovieMaker.doc

this gives directions in PowerPoint to Save as Jpeg, it puts all slides in a folder, then go to Movie Maker, Import, Pictures, select all in the folder.
publish the movie as Avi.
Works like a charm!

You can either use a screen recorder or a PowerPoint to video converter to make a movie for your PowerPoint.

Screen recoders recommended: Camtasia or Camstudio (this one is free, but only one output video format is available)
PowerPoint to video converters recommneded: Wondershare PPT2Video or Acoolsoft PPT to Video.
